Ester Ledecka won the second leg of an unheard-of Olympic double, taking the gold medal in snowboarding's parallel giant slalom Saturday to go to her surprise win in the Alpine super-G earlier in the games.
Ester Ledecka got a rare double gold by becoming the first to win snowboarding's parallel giant slalom and skiing's Alpine super-G at the Olympics, while the United States' men's curling team beat Sweden in an upset.
The youngest Olympian from U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit in Fort Benning, Spc. Dan Lowe, 23, will compete in two events - air rifle and 3-position rifle - at the Rio Olympic Games. “Win or not, I want to walk away saying I left nothing on the table,” he said.
